Several of our Slough Town Junior teams were in action last weekend.
Under 11 girls
The weekend started well with a comfortable game for the U11 girls against Thatcham & Newbury on Saturday.
After a four-week break from competitive cup football, the girls finally got to continue their cup campaign. The first half went very well and the girls were flying. A strong performance made the half time team talk a lot easier! In the second half we started to rotate around, keeping the opponents guessing.
They all played really well, with goals coming from all over the pitch. Our striker and wingers were untouchable and shared the Girl of the Game award.
The Under 10s were at home this week. We started very brightly and had lots of possession but were unable to capitalise on a lot of chances created.
A few changes to personnel and rotating positions for development seemed to upset our rhythm a little. Overall there were some great phases of play, but some unfortunate mistakes didn't help to give us the result we deserved.
Under 15 boys
The U15 boys welcomed top of the league Aylesbury to Mercian Way. A really poor first half from Slough saw them concede two goals to be 2-0 down at half time.
After a stern half time team talk we were expecting a response, and we got it within five minutes of the restart when Lewis lashed the ball home from 6 yards.
The boys really had the bit between their teeth now and went looking for the equaliser. They got it when Callum curled a lovely free kick into top corner. Aylesbury started to get back into it and made it 3-2 when Leo made a good save but was unlucky to see the ball fall to an Aylesbury player who couldn't miss.
Slough responded again when Joseph was brought down for a penalty and Alfie T stepped up and put it away confidently. Both teams had chances to win a really entertaining game between two good teams ended 3-3. It was a great response from the lads after a poor first half. Player of the Match was Alfie T for a great defensive performance.
Under 14 boys
The Under 14 boys played a League Cup tie against Burnham Reds and did themselves proud. There was no giving up, and they fought until the end. No one would have seen us competing with them like we did. A 5-1 defeat is nothing to be ashamed of against a team of academy players, in a team at the top of Division 1.
The quality of football on show was a great step forward for us all - keep up the good work guys, onwards and upwards!
